Razor Turbo Jetts Review

Razor jetts1

I received the Razor Turbo Jetts to review with my son’s. Living in the Midwest, we get serious cabin fever during the winter months. So when the Razor Turbo Jetts arrived we couldn’t wait for the snow to melt, of course we then went into raining season. However, we finally got a good day where we could get out and about and try out the Razor Turbo Jetts. Talk about being thrilled to get outside! OMG! we were so excited to get out and do something together.

I tried them first so I could direct my son’s on how to use the Razor Turbo Jetts.
Okay, Okay, I wanted to try them first because they looked so fun! Shhhhh….that’s not what I told my son’s, I told them that I wanted to be able to tell them how to use them. Don’t judge me….all parents have done it at some point! lol Where was I? Oh, Yes, so I put on the Razor Turbo Jetts, and they were so easy to get on over my shoes, I had a helmet on (Yes, I’m sure it made me look very cute! Safety first, when teaching the kiddos) and elbow and knee pads. So I was building confidence that I could do this no problem! I pushed the switch and I was ready to test them out. I put my foot with the jett on it and I was ready to go. I had a straight sidewalk with no one around so I was on my way.

I went down to the end and came back, the Razor Turbo Jetts worked great. My son’s were jumping up and down when I got back by them. They couldn’t wait to have a turn! So my younger son went first, he had all his gear on and I explained how to use them to him. He was off and down the same path I took. He was screaming as he went that he LOVED THEM! He had an easy time turning around and coming back again because it’s so easy to do, you just use your foot without the Turbo Jett on it and you can easily turn around and go the direction that you want to. My oldest son went next and he went down the same path and had some great time as well. He was also screaming how fun it was and could he take another turn right away! The boys had so much fun on the Razor Turbo Jetts.

We went for another ride before the boys had to get some school work done. It was the perfect way to relax them. However, getting them to do their homework was not as easy as I hoped, they were relaxed and just talking 50 miles an hour about how fast they went. How much they loved the Razor Turbo Jetts, and asking when we could charge them and go riding them again. They were so excited that it was an hour before we got any homework done. Okay, so maybe, just maybe I was joining in with their conversation about the Razor Turbo Jetts. I told them we would go out the weekend and ride them again.

Now, I have to say one day over the weekend the boys went with their dad over night. So if your thinking…”Did she go and have fun with the Razor Turbo Jetts?” The answer is a resounding YES! I went to a new area and had a complete blast with them. I had a few other parents ask me what it is that I was having such a fun time with. I of course told them that it was the Razor Turbo Jetts, so one of the mom’s asked if she could try them so I said of course. I explained how to use them and she just loved them as well. She wanted a set for her and a set for her children, so they could all go out together with them. I told her “Of course! Why shouldn’t we have fun too!” She just had so much fun with them, she said her son had a birthday coming up and she was going to surprise him with his. She was just so excited, she said her son kept asking for them but she wasn’t sure if they were safe for the kids and her. So she was so glad that she ran into me with his birthday coming up shortly. We talked for a little while longer and I was on my way having so much fun and not a care in the world. It was the perfect way to get rid of my cabin fever, let the stress go, and have a great time.

You can find the Razor Turbo Jetts at Razor.com, Amazon, Walmart, Target, and many other great locations. It’s the perfect time to start thinking about early Christmas shopping, birthday’s as well. They will be some happy campers!

Collage.Com Photo Blanket Review And Blanket Giveaway Exp: 11/15 #ChristmasGiftGuide

mom's Blanket

I received a Plush Photo Blanket to review. All opinions of this review are my families and my own. When it arrived I couldn’t wait to open it. I chose photos of our family that I just cherish and wanted to add them to a blanket so that it’s able to be cuddled with and have all the family on it to view as many of them live further away from us. So I thought it would be perfect to have for me.

When the blanket arrived I couldn’t wait to open it like I said. So I opened the package and pulled out this beautiful blanket and the photos look just perfect! I love the way they were arranged and everyone fit on the blanket perfectly. Now, I hope you didn’t think that I had to arrange the photos on the blanket because I didn’t. I just put in the photos that I wanted to use and the Collage.com website did all that work for me. They arranged all the photos just perfectly. As you can see from the photo of my blanket that I made. I just choose the photos and then clicked on the use all photos and it arranged them so that they would all fit perfectly. The best part was that if I didn’t like how they were arranged, I could click on the “shuffle” button and it would move the photos around so I was not stuck with it if I didn’t like it.

The site was so easy to use, so easy to choose the photos that I wanted to use. Even someone who doesn’t do a lot of online shopping can figure out their easy to use website. They take all the guess work out of how to make it and get the perfect blanket made. Although blankets are not all that they offer. You can also choose Canvas photos, Photo books, beach towels, calendars and so much more! They all would make great gifts for any occasion, from Anniversary to the Holidays. You really can not go wrong with a personalized gift. The receiver will really love it and cherish it.

I have been using my blanket everyday as it’s really gotten chilly here. It’s only going to get colder as well, it’s apart of Wisconsin and how it is here. So it’s always perfect to sit cuddled up with hot chocolate and a warm blanket. Now, I can enjoy a hot chocolate with lots of mini marshmellows, with my comfy blanket and a good book and just let winter winds blow outside while I am comfy in the house.

Mr. Bucket Game Review #ChristmasGiftGuide

Mr. Bucket Game

I received the Mr. Bucket Game to review with my kids. We took the Mr. Bucket out of the box and put it together. He is a little creepy without his eyes in place so I would put the Mr. Bucket together before showing the kids. There is a little assembly required with putting his eyes, hands and handle onto the Mr. Bucket. Then you put in your batteries to make him come to life. The batteries are not included.

Once I had Mr. Bucket all put together, I explained to the kiddos how we play the game. There were 4 of us so we all had our own colored balls and shovels that we use to scoop up our own colored balls with. We tested out Mr. Bucket to see how it would work before we started to play. I handed the kids each their shovels so that we were ready to play the game. The kids were having so much fun chasing around Mr. Bucket and having them throw their balls out and they had to chase them to get them back into the bucket. When they got all their balls in they had to grab the handle and pick up Mr. Bucket to win the game.

We played the game both inside and outside. The kids were just having so much fun that they continued to play all day and night with the Mr. Bucket. They each took turns playing and winning. They were laughing so hard that you couldn’t help but laugh with them. They were running around and wearing themselves out as well, which I have to say that I loved as well. lol The game was so easy that even my 2 year old grandson played the game with them.

Mr. Bucket would be the perfect game to keep the kids moving and having fun this winter. A Fun family game night that everyone will enjoy. I even had fun playing the game with the kiddos over and over again. It was just a blast to play with them and we just kept laughing the whole time. It would also make a great gift for a birthday or holiday as well. They will love it and play with it all the time! You can purchase Mr. Bucket at all your favorite stores as well as on Amazon. Let your children have a great time and they will be tired at the end of the night from having so much fun! What more could a parent ask for???

Guardian Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Card Game Review #ChristmasGiftGuide

Guardian of the Galaxy vol 2

I received the Guardian of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Card Game to review with my son’s. Now, I have to say that my son’s are Huge Guardians of the Galaxy fans. They loved both movies and Baby Groot is one of my favorites as well. I mean what’s not to love about Rocket and Groot! We loved both movies and have watched them over and over again. We are hoping there will be another one coming out as well.

We shuffled the cards so we were ready to play the game. You want to avoid getting the lowest point cards in the game. If you get a lower card value you can pass it on to another player. If you have a lower card value you will lose a battery pack. You want to make sure your cassette player is full of batteries. You also have the mix cards that will increase your score or you can take other players scores down with them as well. There are also Character cards like Rocket, Groot, and other characters as well that come with their own powers. You also have events cards as well. They will bring you to new rules of the game as you play. The lower card may lose or win a battery pack with an events card or they may have something else that may help you or help another player in the game.

The kids were having such a great time playing the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 card game. They were learning so much about the movie as well as the game at the same time. We kept playing the game and there were new twists that kept the boys wanting to play more and more. There really was nothing about the game that they didn’t like. They really loved all the different events, Characters, and they had so much fun playing. They each had a character that they wanted to be. They were so excited about playing the game.

There cousins came over and they set up the game to play with them. They are also huge Guardians of the Galaxy Fans so they were all excited. They played the game and raved about how much fun the game was and what the event cards gave them. They just had so much fun that they told my cousin that they had to get the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 card game as well. They were so cute as they were playing together, it really kept their interest, it brought them back to the movie with some of the cards that are in the game.

You can purchase the game on Amazon as well as your favorite stores as well. It’s great for any Guardians of the Galaxy fans, a Birthday or Holiday gift as well.

Turnspell Game Review And Game Prize Pack Giveaway Exp 12/12 #Christmas

turnspell game1

I received the Turnspell Game to review. We love to play games that are educational but still have fun spins to the game. We set up Turnspell and we were ready to play. The boys were pretty excited to play as they thought it was going to be an easy game to play as far as you make 4 letter words for the game but they didn’t realize there were some different twists in the game.

Turnspell can be played by 2 to 4 players, it’s for ages 10 and up. Turnspell is made by Mattel, and they have a lot of great games that we have featured in our reviews as well as our Christmas gift guide this Holiday Season. The players will add up the points on the letter tiles just like on the game Scrabble. When a player reaches 44 points they are the winner of the game. Now, if you do not have the letters to make a word you can lose 5 points, exchange a letter and get a new letter from the letter pouch so that you can create a word. As you make words you add up the points on the tiles to get you to the 44 points. If your board fills up you can remove a word and place it back into the letter pouch without losing points.

The boys and I were having a great time playing Turnspell, it’s a little different then other games. You choose letters and place them on the other players boards. All the players play at the same time as well, you do not take turns. However, I really liked that it was 4 letter words so that everyone is playing on the same playing field. So that children and adults can play the game and it can be anyone that wins. So the boys really liked that anyone could win the game. That it wasn’t to hard for them to play and it really worked on their spelling words as well as their math at the same time due to having to add the tiles to reach the 44 points to win the game.

We played the game together and the boys were having so much fun making words and counting the tiles. My older son won the first game and they wanted to play again. We continued to play and we all won a game. It was so much fun for us all to play Turnspell. It is different then scrabble as you make smaller words, the boards are smaller, and you place tiles on the other players boards instead of your own. However, we really liked the different twists of the game. It would make a great gift for any child that loves to play games or you would like to work on their ability to spell words. They can learn how to in a fun way.

Gas Out Game Review And Prize Pack Giveaway Exp 12/12 #ChristmasGiftGuide

 photo gas out.jpg

I received the Gas Out Game for our family to review. As always the review is of the opinions of our family and myself. We read the instructions for the game and shuffled the deck of cards so we were ready to start playing the game. My grandchildren and my son’s were ready to play the game. So I dealt out 3 cards to each of them. They held their cards and my grandson started the game as he is the youngest playing the game. So I helped him choose a card to play and push on the gas to see if it passed gas.

The kids loved that they could skip players, reverse the turn back to them, and then see if they can keep playing without making it pass gas. The kids were just having so much fun playing the game together and laughing. When each one of the kids would take their turn you could see them closing their eyes, making faces, and things before they pushed it down to see if it would pass gas. It was so funny to watch their facial expressions they were making each turn they had.

It was a great way for us to have less screen time and more family time but in a fun way. They were just playing and laughing and didn’t even realize there were no electronics on. We love to have fun family game nights and Gas Out is the perfect way to have a great time with the whole family. We kept playing the game over and over again. They had a so much fun that when it was time to eat dinner they didn’t want to go to the table to eat. So I told them it was time to eat but that when they were done eating they could go back to playing games again. So that finally got them to the table.

Gas Out would make a great gift this holiday season, but it would also be a fun birthday gift or just for family game nights as well. It’s a fun as well as funny way to get the family having fun and away from t.v., tablets, and all other screen time activities. I can tell you that this weekend we will be doing another family game night and Gas Out will be apart of the fun game night. It has quickly become a family favorite as well. It will keep you laughing and cringing when you hear the fart sound.

You can also win a family prize pack to add to your family game nights on A Mom’s Paradise thanks to Mattel for allowing us to review these great games as well as offer some great giveaways of them as well. Good luck everyone!

Squawk Game Review And Prize Pack Giveaway #ChristmasGiftGuide

squawk game

I received the Squawk Game to review with my family. Now, I have to say that I wondered what could be fun about this game. I mean it’s a chicken that you try to have lay and egg. What could be fun about that! It is an adorable chicken, but really how could this game keep the kids attention and get them engaged in the game?

We read the instructions,We set up all the pieces and started to play the game. There is a little bit of assembly to do before you play the game. Now, to play the game you put the egg in place so that the Chicken can lay it when it’s ready. The first player will roll the dice, then they will squeeze the Chicken to make it squawk. It may lay the egg, if the chicken does not lay the egg then it’s the next person’s turn. You continue to play till the Chicken lays it’s egg. Now, when the chicken is going to lay it’s egg then the hen house opens and the chicken lays the egg. When you open the egg if the chick is face up then you keep the token. The person with the most chicks wins the game.

I helped my grandson play with the rest of the kids. They were all laughing at the chicken squawking. They were having a great time and couldn’t wait for their turn to make the chicken squawk. When the eggs came out, the kids would just cheer and wait to see if the chick was face up or down. They were having such an amazing time playing the game that they didn’t want the fun to end. I of course had things I needed to get done so my older son helped my grandson to play the game.

They were completely entertained for a long time, which meant I could get things done while they were having a great time. It was a win/win! I also loved that they were having fun and it wasn’t watching t.v. or having screen time which we have been cutting back on a lot so this was a great way for them to have fun without realizing that they were losing the screen time! They played most of the afternoon with the Squawk game. Then changed to other games.

Squawk would make a great game for a gift! You can find it at all your favorite retail stores. Your child will love it as well and you can have lots of fun playing games with them.

Googly Eyes Game Review #ChristmasGiftGuide

googly eyes game

I received Googly Eyes Game to review with my family. The kids were very curious about the Googly Eyes Game and how to play it. They were very curious as to what the glasses were going to do for the game and how funny they would look with them on.

We read the instructions and we started to play Googly Eyes. We got all the pieces and board set up and then we shuffled the cards so that the game was all ready to play. Now, the object of the game is to wear the Googly Eye Glasses and then draw the picture of what the card tells you to and to have the other person guess what you drew. However, the glasses lenses make it a little more difficult to see what your drawing.

The whole family was having a great time playing Googly Eyes. You roll the dice, then move your piece, when you land on the color you choose the card that matches, then draw the picture that is stated on the card. But, you have to remember it’s not always easy depending on which lens you have in the Googly Eyes glasses. The lenses are easy to difficult to see through. So it can change the way you would normally draw. The pictures that you draw can be easier or have some difficulty depending on the lenses that you use. However, there are spaces on the board where you can choose which glasses lens you can use.

The Googly Eyes game will have you laughing as your trying to figure out what the other person is drawing. Some will have you laughing so hard as you try to guess what they are drawing. There are plenty of laughs to be had and everyone looks so funny wearing the googly eye glasses as well. It’s really such a great game to play with the kids and family. You can have so much fun. I do suggest that you go to Dollar Tree to purchase extra drawing tablets because this will be a family favorite game! You will want to play all the time. Parents you will not be bored with this game and dread playing it.

The Googly Eyes game will be one you will play all the time. It would make a great Christmas gift for any child on your shopping list. It’s also a great gift idea for birthday parties and one that the parents will thank you for over and over again! You can purchase Googly Eyes at all your favorite stores as well.

Uno Attack Game Review And Game Giveaway #ChristmasGiftGuide

Uno Attack Game

I received the Uno Attack Game to review with our family. We love the traditional Uno game, we play it all the time, so we were excited to try out the Uno Attack Game. We love having down time to have more time with our family and no screen time.

We got the game out and got it all ready to play. Now, I have to say that my youngest son likes to try to cheat when we play Uno, so I was excited to see how this works and if he would have to stick to the rules. We started to play the game after reading the rules. My son’s and my mom were so excited about playing. So we let my son start us off after we dealt the hands, he played his card and pushed the launcher button and several cards came out to him. Then my other son took his turn and pushed the launcher button and only 1 card came out. As we continued to play everyone was laughing and having a great time.

It was the first time that my youngest wasn’t able to “act” like he picked a card when he didn’t! However, he was having such a great time playing that he didn’t even notice that he couldn’t cheat at the game. The Uno Attack went round and round the table, and as we played it would send it’s cards out to each player. My older son won the game and we all cheered for him. Then we started a new game, I have to say though, my youngest son didn’t cheat, complain when he didn’t win, or stomp off and not want to play the game again. That’s his normal at times when we play games so since he was having so much fun, he forgot about his normal and was ready to play the next game.

We had a blast the whole night playing Uno Attack. We have plans to play a marathon board game day over the Christmas break for the kids. We can hardly wait and are doing a calendar count down with the boys till the fun day. We have been playing Uno Attack on a regular basis though till that day. If your looking for a fun family game then your going to love Uno Attack. The whole family can play and have a fun time! It’s the perfect Christmas gift for the kids on your Christmas shopping list. You can find Uno Attack at all your favorite stores.
